Hanksy’s “Surplus Candy” returns this Wednesday, November 12th – this time landing smack in the middle of Portland. Be sure to tune in here on TheHundreds.com to see Hanksy – with the help of Squarespace – take on the incredibly strict anti-graffiti laws of Portland. Also, be sure to check it out on his Instagram @hanksynyc and on his site www.hanksy.com.
“There’s a bunch of art getting painted on walls between New York City and LA and it’s my opinion that if a knucklehead artist like myself is randomly given some weird pseudo-serious spotlight, they use it for good not evil. The best thing I can do is show what’s up and what’s going down in the smaller markets of North America. Elevating others always beats out the dog-eat-dog.” – Hanksy
Internationally acclaimed – and anonymous – street artist Hanksy takes the viewer on an in-depth six-episode street art expedition in The Hundreds’ newest web series “Surplus Candy.” The series begins with an immersive look at Montreal’s budding scene, an introduction to a globe-trotting foray into other key hot-spots, including Detroit, Austin, Portland, and more.
